a partnership that will pay the salaries of five coaches a
development that he added promises a brighter future
for the national team.

“We want to avoid as much as possible the perceived
mistakes that made us to miss out of the AFCON 2017.
To ensure that we brought the best coach that can
qualify us for the World Cup, the first thing we did was
to ensure we got a partner that will pay the fees of all
the coaches. We sent a request of about five coaches
and that was granted and the company requested we
should keep every other thing under wraps for now.
”After the last AFCON ouster, we started thinking of
Russia ad we are making efforts to pay all the coaches
so that they will give their best at all times. Truly we
are very desirous of qualifying for the 2018 world cup,” he said.
